At Spence Funeral Services, we help families through the process of saying farewell by creating meaningful celebration gatherings that honor the love and life of those who have passed. We help families share special and unique remembrances by providing caring guidance and supporting individual wishes.

Our mission has always been to provide excellent service to families while keeping costs affordable. As a long-standing member of the local community, we are a resource for individuals and families for funeral and memorial services in Manheim, Lititz, Elizabethtown and the surrounding Lancaster County areas.

We understand that it is not always possible to attend a visitation or service. We’ll create beautiful online memory pages to reach out to those who want to express their love and support. Family and friends may share a condolence or memory, post a photo, watch a webcast of the service, and more.
